My Journal 4 the day....
I have "digged" a journal i had posted sometime back,
4 ur interesting reading.
Hopefully we all stop arguing abt what universities we studied at,
N all the trival things..
At the end of the road it's not everything..
Time n time again,
an idea about a pathway through life assails my train of thought;
such thoughts occur only momentarily majority of the time.
As my vacation progresses however,
its frequency became increasingly higher,
tugging at my mind, pleading 4 it 2 be given deeper considerations
than just a brief acknowledgment.
The thought about having a manual on
how 2 get to where one aspires 2 be,
2 acquire in their possession what they want or
simply 2 be what they aspire 2 be was most appealing.
The idea was always flashing in my subconscious n only now,
through sheer determination 2 be heard,
broke through the mould created by my habit 2 shrug of seemingly
Insignificance, after all, is merely a perception.
By virtue of the above,
I put down in words the thoughts n ideas
that had been tugging at my subconscious
lest it elude me once more.
The idea was simple,
follow the steps n u shall be successful,
it was foolproof n it was packaged nicely with multiple benefits.
Why then have I been shrugging this idea away?
Why did it seem absurd?
On giving the idea consideration,
the steps 2 follow became clearer,
it was a path many of us have been following all along;
it was education,
the path 2 attain qualifications which,
in theory, would get us better paid jobs which would then allow us
2 get what we want in life.
Its glitter faded n its absurdity became apparent,
it was flawed.
I am not questioning the validity of education,
it certainly is essential and I am not disputing that fact.
It is the mindset that is flawed,
the belief that greatness can only be achieved through qualifications.
